(Sir) Robert de COLQUHOUN. Fifth Lord of Colquhoun and seventh of Luss. [Familytree].
Born about 1310 in Dunbarton, Scotland; son of Sir Humphrey Colquhoun.

He married the Heiress of Humphry de Luss in 1340 (According to Fraser, the family historian, married in or previous to the year 1368), thereby joining the two families and thus becoming the 5th of Colquhoun and the 7th of Luss. Sir Robert was designed "dominus de Colquhoun and de Luss," in a charter dated in 1368; since which time the family have borne the designation of Colquhoun of Colquhoun and Luss. As Robert de Colquhoun, he witnessed a grant of Auchmarr to Walter Buchanan in 1373, in the reign of David II. He died about 1390 in Dumbarton, Scotland. Sir Robert was dead in 1391 when his lands of Meikle Sauchy were in the hands of the King, the heir not having up to that time obtained infeftment.

Lady of Luss.
Known in the family tradition as "The Fair Maid of Luss." Born about 1310; daughter of Godfridus LUSS [F18087938], 6th Laird of Luss. Godfridus is sixth in a direct male line from Malduin, dean of Lennox, who, in the beginning of the thirteenth century, received from Alwyn, second Earl of Lennox, a charter of the lands of Luss. The Luss territories lie in the mountainous but beautiful and picturesque district on the margin of Loch Lommond. She married Robert de COLQUHOUN in 1340.
